Study Finds Slight Reduction in COPD Risk in Women Who Regularly Take Vitamin E Supplements

May 17, 2010 -- Long-term, regular use of vitamin E supplements appears to reduce the risk of chronic obstructive lung disease or COPD in women, according to a new study.

Parenting-

Sat, May 22,2010
Q. My 12-year-old daughter refuses to clean her room. She often argues with me, and I am not sure how to get her to clean her room. What can I do?

A. Getting your children to clean their rooms can be a chore for parents. Parents might just rather do the chores themselves instead of exhaust their energy attempting to get their children to complete the task. However, chores teach children not only important skills, such as responsibility and cooperation, but also build self-esteem. As your child gets older, chores can teach them valuable lessons about life and build a good attitude toward work.

May 17, 2010 -- Children who suffer from severe, persistent asthma are nearly 32 times more likely to develop chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) in adulthood, according to a study spanning nearly half a century.

At the time they were recruited, the children were placed into four groups:  those who did not experience wheezing or asthma symptoms, those who experienced occasional ast..more

Low-Fat Vegan Diet for Reversing Diabetes

Sat, May 22,2010

I have often declared that there are many good eating strategies for diabetes reversal. All eating strategies have strengths and weaknesses. In this blog entry, I’ll share my thoughts about Dr. Neal Barnard’s program for reversing diabetes.
I like Dr. Barnard’s approach. He is a physician who cares deeply about fighting diabetes and getting at the root causes. He recognizes the power of lifestyle change for reversing and preventing health problems, and he has been a leader in framing type 2 diabetes as a potentially “reversible” condition. He has published several books, inclu..more
